"This is a story of David Richmond, a man struggling to reclaim his own equilibrium in a time of personal crisis along with the unexpected death of his best friend. It is a look at his journey from promiscuous party animal, to sober, mentally stable adult by way of analysis. It is also an exhilarating look at a period in New York City when life was about parties, dancing, meaningless encounters in the dark, and then the somber after effects of such behavior in the age of AIDS. It is a tale about ghosts and intrigue, hope, ambition, and mystery. Most of all, it is an unapologetic look at urban life, its joys and pitfalls, and ultimately the days and nights of reckoning where secrets are revealed and love is tested to see if it is indeed as David Richmond proclaims, "a verb!" The Moaning After is all this, and so much more."
